The survey, conducted by Fugro GB North Marine Limited, was completed on time and without incident. Data collection commenced on 8 September and was completed on 14 September with demobilisation commencing shortly thereafter. The results of the initial phase of the survey will be interpreted and, if required, a second geotechnical phase incorporating the collection of samples from the seabed will be undertaken before the end of the year.
Graham Swindells, Chief Executive of Deltic Energy, commented: "The completion of the site survey on Pensacola is a key part of the well planning process and represents another important milestone as the Deltic-Shell JV continues the preparatory works in advance of drilling. We look forward to progressing through the planning phase as we get closer to drilling this high impact prospect."
